The game will debut for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam in North America and Europe on January 15. Physical versions will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The port will feature rerecorded Japanese voices, including Takeshi Kaneshiro returning as Samanosuke, and a new soundtrack. The player will be able to switch between the game's original resolution (4:3) and widescreen (16:9) at any time, with a screen scroll feature available for widescreen. The game has a new easy mode and analog stick support.

The original Onimusha: Warlords game debuted in 2001 for PlayStation 2. Capcom last released Onimusha Soul, a port of the 2012 browser game, in 2014 on the PlayStation 3. AnimeWorks released Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, a CG film compiling footage from the 2006 Playstation 2 game of the same name, in 2013.
